It's been a busy few days for the Royal family. As reported a few days ago, Prince Charles visited Stoke-on-Trent to view Middleport Pottery that was saved by his Prince's Regeneration Trust. He took time out during the dedication and festivities to try his hand at applying transfer printed decoration to a jug....
And didn't look exactly thrilled with the results.....

Elsewhere, his mother, Queen Elizabeth II continued her Australian tour which has been a great success...aside from someone "mooning" the queen in Brisbane on Monday. Sheer Cheek!!! (sorry...couldn't resist!)
In another bit of royal news, Kate or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge filled in for Prince Charles on Oct. 26th for a gala private charity dinner for In Kind Direct, on of Prince Charles' charities at Clarence House. The prince had to call on Kate because he had to fly to Saudi Arabia to offer the Queen's condolences on the loss of the crown prince. Apparently Kate filled in admirably.

Have a great day! We have shopping to do and a big order to pack and ship to a serviceman. Just got off the phone with him and was thrilled to be able to tell him how much we appreciate his service to our country. Never met him, but he is overseas doing his job for the American people.
